Cloud Web Hosting Explanation

In general, the genuine cloud website hosting solution serves separate website hosting services like web space, mail, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, Control Panel, backup, etc., on different sets of top-notch web servers. Each individual service pack produces a cluster. All the servers in a cluster are devoted to serving exclusively the particular service and nothing beside it. They will all run as one web server, sharing out the service's load in practically equipollent proportions. If there is a real cloud website hosting service, there must be: a disk space cluster, an electronic mail cluster, a File Transfer Protocol cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a web hosting CP cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these autonomous service clusters will render the so-called cloud website hosting platform.

The great cloud website hosting fraud. Quite common now.

There is so much speculation circulating around about cloud hosting at the moment. As you can perceive, cloud website hosting does not only seem perplexing, but in reality it is extremely complicated. Most of the people are not at all aware of what cloud website hosting is. Based on this popular ignorance, the "cloud website hosting distributors" speculate fiercely, just to get hold of the customer and his/her 5 dollars per month. What a shame! A big shame. This is because in the hosting business niche there are no norms whatsoever. The domain name industry has ICANN. The website hosting industry has no such supervisory body. That is the reason why the website hosting distributors speculate and lie openly (very bluntly, as a matter of fact) to their customers. Notably the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's find out how much cloud hosting they actually can offer.

The facts about the cPanel-based "cloud" website hosting traders

If a cPanel-based web hosting retailer has a cloud web hosting solution at hand, which is very unbelievable, plenty of servers must be purchased. Which is also not cheap. We will get back to that at the end of this story. But before we do, let's see what the cloud troubles are. So, it's very improbable for a cPanel hosting vendor to have the cloud website hosting system at hand, owing to the fact that inventing one demands years. Even when time and the provision of a highly qualified team are not a problem, loads of cash must be spent as well. Mountains of cash. In addition, cPanel is not open source. That's an immense obstacle.

The deficiency of open source cloud website hosting environments

There aren't any open source cloud website hosting solutions. There are no open source Control Panel GUIs (working with the cloud web hosting system) as well. Therefore, to have a cloud website hosting system at hand, in the first place you have to fabricate one. In-house. Second of all, you have to set up the web hosting Control Panel as well.

Single server-based website hosting Control Panels

Famous web hosting CPs such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are devised to run on one single server exclusively. All website hosting services (disk storage, mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, web hosting CP, backup, and so on) are being served at the same time on one single web server where these particular one-server website hosting platforms and web hosting CPs are installed.

The shortage of open source website hosting CPs

So, you have to develop a custom website hosting CP that will work faultlessly and to accommodate it within the cloud platform, as if it was an inbuilt component of it. Appropriate examples of in-house made cloud website hosting solutions with in-house set up web hosting CPs besides us, at Crozland Hosting, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud website hosting hardware provision costs

The minimal investment wanted, just for the cloud website hosting hardware provision, amounts to somewhere between 60 thousand dollars and $80,000 USD. That's excluding the DDoS mechanism, which is another 15-20,000 dollars. Now you do know how many cloud website hosting platforms can be stumbled upon out there... and, above all, why the hosting sky is so blue... and practically unclouded!
